Today Nick & Dr. Joanna will discuss using hypnotherapy wtih Spinal Cord Injury patients. Science tells us that patients afflicted with spinal cord injuries resulting in para or qualdriplegia will never walk or do many things again, but is that really true? As a former pharmaceutical researcher and RN who has read through many spinal cord injury charts, Dr. Joanna has always wondered about whether the spinal cord could, through the power of the mind, regenerate itself to help a patient heal their injury or at least regain some of their mobility and independence.
Join them for a most interesting discussion as Nick will be talking about using hypnotherapy on patients with these challenging injuries and the surprising and enlightening results he has seen.

Martin Heng was born in the UK, with the travelling gene, he says that he has visited more than 40 countries. Often his globe-trotting adventures revolved around exploration on two-wheels, an avid cyclist he has peddled through destinations as diverse as northern France, Japan, New Zealand’s South Island and Tanzania. For almost a full decade Heng was loosely home-based in Asia, but worked only enough to fund his travel addiction. What self-professed independent traveller would not dream of working for Lonely Planet? Melbourne, Australia beckoned and two years later (1999) Martin was working for Lonely Planet. He worked his way up through several positions into the demanding role of Trade Publishing and Editorial Manager responsible for coordination and publishing of all the guidebooks, a gargantuan task that is accomplished with an in-house team of some 60 staff and an army of freelance authors scattered around the globe. In November 2010, a motorist broadsided Martin while he was biking. He gained consciousness and began to comprehend the realities of being a quadriplegic. Martin has worked tirelessly with a team of medical professionals since the accident and he is now able to walk short distances with a walking aid, an incredible feat. The accident has not diminished Heng’s passion for travel; it has opened a new door at Lonely Planet with its Travel for All project and Martin’s new broad-reaching role as Accessible Travel Manager and Editorial Adviser.
Spencer was thirteen when he was paralyzed in a snowboarding accident. Prior to the acident, he loved swimming in the ocean, playing basketball and snowboarding. He used to revel in the freedom of riding his bike with his friends, the wind flying in his hair.On February 1, 2010, Spencer's life changed forever. He crashed his snowboard and shattered his C4/C5 vertebrae, sustaining a severe spinal cord injury. Unable to breathe, move or feel anything below chest level, Spencer remained hospitalized for over three months. But Spencer never accepted the doctors prognosis and he never gave up.
Now, four years and six rehabilitation sessions a week later, Spencer is making amazing progress. He has sensation and movement in almost every part of his body. He can push his own wheelchair (with power assist wheels), write with his left hand, stand, and take unassisted steps. He now drives independently in a specially adapted car. He is also a high school senior with top grades. Spencer has demonstrated courage and an exemplary work ethic in his recovery. He also has a great sense of humor.
In December 2010 life as I knew it changed forever. One day I was a very active 24 year old, riding motor bikes, playing football, fishing and camping, and the next I was a C5/C6 quadriplegic unable to do the things I loved in life. I spent 6 weeks in Intensive Care on a ventilator unable to even breath for myself or move anything below my neck. All up I spent 6 months in hospital trying to regain any function possible. Doctors told me I’d be using a Power Chair for the rest of my life and never be able to look after myself in any way. While in hospital I heard about an intensive training program called “Walk On” which was based off another highly regarded intensive training program in America called “Project Walk”.
Since doing Walk On I am now using a manual chair and have gained enough strength to transfer in and out of my chair and a car with minimal assistance. I have also made the trip to America to attend Project Walk where I gained more strength and motivation, and I’m planning on going back to America in the near future.
After more than 3 and a half years I’m still getting stronger and making progress towards regaining more independence and possibly to at least being able to stand one day. https://m.facebook.com/thereecewallenappeal
